    Excellent board.
    GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

    Pros
    1. Lots of USB ports including USB 3.0
    2. CPU memory area laid out well. No clearance issues even with a monster CPU cooler.
    3. Good software/driver disk.
    4. Lots of internal headers for additional USB ports.
    5. Excellent manual and installation guide.

    Cons
    1. No fan headers on the back side of the board. Had to build an extension cord for my rear case fan to be able to reach the closest header which was located on the center, bottom of the board.
    2. Bottom rear side of the board is a bad place to put the front panel audio header. Barely had enough cable length to reach it.
    3. Forward facing SATA ports. Can be difficult to connect in all but the largest of cases.

    From start to OS installation it only took about 45 minutes to build up this system. The board was easy to install minus above mentioned minor issues. OS installation and driver install went flawlessly. Rock stable, fast board. Would highly recommend this board.

    This is a good mother board for the price. If you don’t really want to do anything extra fancy like me but just want to build a solid pc then this is a good mother board if you’re looking to go the cheaper route. The USB 3.0 on a motherboard this price is definitely a plus. The space between the pci slots is also well spaced for those who want to eventually add on another graphics card. My only warning with this is that if you are using the newer FX Bulldozer processors then be sure that you flash the thing or else it won’t even be able to power up. For a first time builder like myself it was a good learning experience but for others this may save them a lot of headache.

    Flawless packaging, doc, and install. Paired with AMD FX 8120 CPU, 32 GB of memory, 4 3TB HDD’s, and dual boot CentOS/Window 7 Pro.

    Very pleased with AMD & Gigabyte.
